Your job

In an ever-changing political and economic landscape, Royal IHC enables its customers to execute complex projects from sea level to ocean floor in the most challenging of maritime environments. We are a reliable supplier of innovative and efficient equipment, vessels and services for the dredging, offshore and mining markets. To further strengthen the Business Development and Marketing team, we are hiring a Market Intelligence Analyst. The Business Development and Marketing team focuses on developing new markets with existing – as well as new – business propositions. It has a strategic business function that creates value by stimulating, facilitating and fulfilling customer demands. We do so by understanding their needs and responding to them more effectively than anyone else. We are a team of nine enthusiastic members covering the following disciplines: business development; (digital) marketing and customer and market intelligence. 

As Market Intelligence Analyst, you will be responsible for integrating data on what our customers are doing and why yielding new insights into their needs, and how we can best meet them. As such, you will be passionate about analytics, taking an exploitative approach and performing quantitative research. You will then translate your findings into information of strategic relevance that offers high-level guidance to the executive committee and our (internal) business partners. To achieve this, you must provide in-depth insights into our markets, customers, competitors and overall trends. In addition, you will have the ability to present your findings to different audiences, manage and maintain digital dashboards, and cooperate closely with all relevant stakeholders (internally and externally). As Market Intelligence Analyst, you will be responsible for:  

  • translating market data into relevant insights (that is, information upon which the management team can base its decisions)
  • processing and creating content for the market outlooks, both quarterly and annually, and  transforming facts and conclusions into advice 
  • analysing any findings of interest in a proactive way
  • managing, maintaining and using our interactive digital dashboard 
  • gathering and orchestrating ‘live’ market intelligence by attending – and presenting at –market-related conferences and other networking events
  • building a network with peers in the industry (or adjacent industries) to stimulate and steer on co-creation and information sharing  
  • managing and answering ad hoc internal requests and fulfilling these in order of priority and within the agreed deadlines
  • cooperating with the Business Development and (Digital) Marketing team and offering support in terms of business cases and analytics.

Your profile

To be eligible for the position of Market Intelligence Analyst, you must have:

  • a higher vocational education (HBO), preferably in business, economics or marketing
  • advanced knowledge of Microsoft Office (especially Excel and PowerPoint), and experience with tooling such as Microsoft Power BI 
  • well-developed analytical skills, and a strong ability to oversee, understand and convert a wide range of complex data into useful information
  • excellent communication skills, as well as fluency in English and Dutch (both verbal and written)
  • be an ‘intrapreneur’ with a proactive attitude and a customer-oriented focus 
  • ability to network and work effectively as part of a team.
Please note, only applicants with a valid EU work visa will be considered as viable candidates. An online assessment and screening can form part of the recruitment process.
